Grand County High School juniors Grace Osusky and Tyler Moreau have been named as the school’s Students of the Year for the 2017-2018 school year. They were recognized during the annual end-of-year pizza lunch held at the Moab Elks Lodge on Tuesday, May 9.

Both students had previously received the school’s Student of the Month award during the 2016-2017 school year. Osusky received the honor in October 2016 and Moreau was named GCHS Student of the Month in January 2017.

They were presented with the award by Exalted Ruler Dan Stott of Moab Elks Lodge No. 2021, which sponsors the GCHS Student of the Month program.

Osusky, the daughter of Tony and Karen Osusky, has been involved in numerous activities at GCHS, including debate, student government, Quiz Bowl and Science Olympiad. She plays violin and helped younger musicians by serving as an instructor for the popular Moab Strings program.

Moreau, the son of Tom and Margaret Moreau, has also participated in many activities at GCHS, including being on the Red Devil mountain biking team, as well as the swim and tennis teams. He also participated in Science Olympiad and Quiz Bowl, and has been a lighting and sound technician for the high school drama department. Besides Osusky and Moreau, the other 16 GCHS students who had received Student of the Month honors during the 2016-2017 school year were also recognized during the May 9 luncheon, along with members of the school’s National Honor Society chapter.
